hi guys.just gotten myself a vespa gt200.

 

i realised everytime i release my hands off the handle bar...

 

the handle bar will vibrate pretty much and the bike usually tend to go move down to the right (almost like making a right turn). is this normal?

 

i changed my wheel bearings. tightened the steering cone . slightly better but the bike tends to move right if i let go on free roll.

 

no accident on this bike before.

 

 

you might wanna read this : GT/GTS Steering Wobble (aka "Headshake")

nothing worth having comes easy.

Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.

LX150 is using a piaggio leader 4 stroke aircooled engine.

 

Oil change at every 3000km.

Filter change at every 6000km

Belt change at every 12000km

Gear oil change at every 12000km

Airfilter wash/change every 12000km.

 

Mounting bush will start failing after 3~4 years if you are the corner kind rider.

Suspension check every 3~4 years.

 

One of the low maintenace bike actually.

 

For the stone scratch.

notthing u can do. It's part and parcel of riding.

The lx is using the the tradition vespa monoque (1 piece) steel frame.

with a little plastic panels.

 

If it's a small panel and removable. Take out and respray lor

a proper respray on a small piece of panel cost 50~100. depending on size.

hi peeps, well i just got a vespa px 150 scooter for about a week or so. and i must say that i enjoy riding my new baby. one question i have in mind is , how fast do you ride on the expressway before your bike starts to wobble?

 

i had an experience where i was riding with a pillion at the ecp and mind you i wasnt riding that fast, maybe 50-60km/h but i could feel the bike wobbling or swaying from side to side. well is this normal?

 

i felt it wobbled when a big trailers or cars passed by me.

 

well im guessing its something to do with aerodynamics. but what im worried about is the mechanical parts, like the steering column or the suspensions and stuff.

 

hope you guys could give me some answers to this.

 

and thanx alot in advance!

 

peace!

whenever big trailers or cars travelling really fast pass me. definitely will wobble or sway slightly. i guess one reason is that vespa is light.

 

for the first time, i tested out my top speed which is ard 110km/h, at that time, my scooter started to wobble, it feels like it is going to break apart. scary. i didn't dare to throttle any further.

 

regarding the mechanical explaination of wobbling, i'm not too sure. initially, my suspension was very soft. so when i corner, it feels wobbly. after i changed my suspension, cornering is more stable.

You might want to check the air pressure of the wheels especially the front wheel,perhaps a tad too much air.

 

other reasons might be wearing off of the steering cone or a bad bent front fork or an unstable engine mount

 

usually if ur able to handsfree for a short while in the carpark,you are prolly safe.

It's easy to laugh...It's easy to hate.

Though it takes strenght to be gentle and kind.

I'm a fan of the Vespa GT200, looks like the demand for it is getting higher. I went to Piaggio the last time and they told me it's already out of production. =( Anyway, i'm looking for 2nd hand GT200, anyone out there selling here can leave me a pm. Thanks! It would be very interesting to see the GT200 install the Malossi 210cc Cylinder. wahahahaha!

hie guys and ladies! *smiles* much much much thanx for the advices. well my frend's scoot could go to 110km/h before it starts to wobble also. so from the replies that i've got, i might check the bushing on the shock and engine mounts. and about the air pressure of the wheels, its hard tho, but maybe its a tad to had.

 

thanx alot !

 

yay!

Another possible reason for wobble is that the wheel bearings is shot(gone).

 

Just lift up the front tyre from the road and turn it if got sound from the spindle then likely to be loose. If no sound then move the wheel left and right while someone holding the handlebar steady. If has slight movement and rattle then it time to change the bearings.
